Winemaker Notes

The names given to Spring Valley Vineyard wines are a tribute to the family members who have succeeded in farming the same land where the vineyard and winery now flourish. This Cabernet Sauvignon blend's name stems from Frederick Corkrum, son to Uriah and father to Shari, who grew up in Spring Valley.

This New World-styled Cabernet Sauvignon blend is a highly structured, fruit-driven wine, what in France would be called "Un Vin Charpente," or a wine with strong structure like a roof. A nose of candied plum, blackberry jam, and flowers leads into a huge, soft palate, with Cabernet Franc adding texture and vibrancy to the big, fruity Cabernet Sauvignon.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Dense and juicy, this is packed with disarmingly delicious currant, plum, roasted meat and mineral flavors, and when the finish kicks in this shows elegance and finesse. Offers power and personality, with deft balance. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2020. 1,150 cases made.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Frederick Cabernet Sauvignon Blend is made up of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot aged for 21 months in 62% new French oak. Purple/black in color, it sports an enticing perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, violets, espresso, black currant, and blackberry. Full-bodied, dense, and youthful, it requires another 3-4 years of cellaring. It will offer prime drinking from 2015 to 2032.
91+ points.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Plush and plummy, this blend is half cabernet sauvignon with the balance franc, merlot and a little petit verdot. It leads with dark blue fruit scents marked by a deep savory note. It’s a big wine with youthful, fruit-forward flavors, the austere tannins needing bottle age to evolve.

Spring Valley Vineyard, Washington
Spring Valley Vineyard Winery Video

Spring Valley Vineyard is a limited-production winery producing only estate-grown-and-bottled red wines. For more than a century, the Corkum-Derby family has been farming the area known as Spring Valley. Grapes were first planted in 1993. Spring Valley produced its first estate grown and bottled wine, Uriah, with the 1999 vintage. Today, Uriah is one of Washington's most acclaimed red wines, and the Spring Valley family of wines has grown to include seven red wines: Uriah (Merlot-based blend), Frederick (Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend), Nina Lee (100% Syrah), Katherine Corkrum (100% Cabernet Franc), Mule Skinner (100% Merlot), Derby (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) and the newest release, Sharilee (Petit Verdot). The names given to their wines are a tribute to the family members who have struggled and succeeded in farming the same land where Spring Valley Vineyard now flourishes.

Columbia Valley, Washington

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
